The UMKC School of Dentistry held its sixth annual Give Kids a Smile day on Friday, February 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All of the 240 dental operatories in the UMKC School of Dentistry's main clinic and virtually all of the school's students and clinical faculty were devoted to providing free oral healthcare to disadvantaged children from the KCMO, KCK, Hickman Mills and Raytown school districts. The school conducted the event in partnership with the Score 1 for Health community health program, which is sponsored by the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCUMB) and the Deron Cherry Foundation. The children receiving care at UMKC were identified during health screenings coordinated by Score 1 for Health and performed by KCUMB medical students and UMKC dental students.
